IT GETS WORSE: Obama's Enduring Monument to Himself -- "Look Upon My Works Ye Mighty and Despair"


How Bad Is The Employment Picture? This Bad

It’s been called the scariest jobs chart you’ll ever see, and every month it gets updated it just looks worse.


In other words, we are in the worst jobs recession since the Great Depression and we’ve just recently reached the lowest point of the previous worst jobs recession.

You just keep making economic policy decisions, Barack. That's what you're good at.

Policies which enrich the folks who don't produce, such as loans, guarantees, subsidies, and grants to stock brokers, insurance companies, and inefficient politically motivated schemes, will destroy productivity and birth dependence on the soon to be non-existent producers.

While the above chart is indeed scary, it is somewhat misleading as it lines up all the lowest unemployment rates. For a truly frightening chart, see this at

that takes the same data and graphs each downturn from their starting point to recovery. That will show you how deep and persistent this recession is.

We here in DC and environs have no stinkin' recession. It's due to a very simple and effective policy: we impoverish the rest of the nation to enrich and fatten ourselves. Enjoy the new food pie chart peseants!

Employers must be racists. That must be the answer. Yeah, that's got to be it.

Or - it is still Bush's fault. That one too. Yeah, that's the ticket.

What a relief! At first I thought that was barry's approval rating!

Thank goodness he golfs more than any sitting President in the history of history, he needs that valuable "me time" to use that colossal intellect of his to sort out these important national problems.

What does he come up with?

It's Bush's fault.

But, but, he's working 24/7 to get the employment rate up. He goes to bed thinking about jobs and wakes up thinking about jobs.

I guess this means he's not very good at jobs. (Or even golf!)

max international also has a phenomenal home based business opportunity with maxgxl. first of all take a look at your needs and then choose the one accordingly. avocado also contains heart-healthy oleic acid and omega-3 fatty acids (in form of alpha-linolenic acid). this phytic acid can combine with calcium, magnesium, copper, iron and zinc in the intestinal tract and prevent their absorption. another common health problem in the united states is high blood pressure.
